Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers are extremely unstable in the first half of the season. It is worth noting that the team has 11 wins in 20 matches. With a win ratio of 0.55, the hosts are on the 5th line in the standings, which, looking at the composition of the hosts, cannot but please the fans. The gap from the 9th line is 2 potential victories, and the gap from the first Golden State is already catastrophic – 7 Victoria. Most likely, the Clippers will struggle for conditional 5-6 places in their conference.

New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans are currently on the 14th line in the Western Conference standings. The visiting team has only 5 wins to its credit, which allows them to be located above Houston. However, the "rockets" are gradually catching up with the opponent, and have already been able to give out 2 victorious meetings in a row. After winning the matches against Washington and Utah, the guests ran out of gas, and they lost to the same Jazz in the second match in two days (105:127).
